January 31, 2019

Fort Wayne Community Schools said this afternoon it would remain closed on Friday because of transportation issues, but its district offices would be open.

The buses need time to warm up before running again, and today’s temperatures are not warm enough, spokeswoman Krista Stockman said in a statement. She said the makeup day for Friday’s closing is May 31.

An extended period of below-zero temperatures and dangerous wind chills is ending this afternoon. The National Weather Service predicts 3 to 5 inches of snow in Allen County between tonight and Friday morning.
